Jalapeno Pop Stars Recipe

As you all know I'm always on the hunt for a great recipe. My favorite ladies over at My Baby Clothes Boutique have been so nice to send me a few of their favorites. And like the good hostess I am I have to share :). Hope you enjoy!


Jalapeno Pop Stars

I have a recipe that's going to make you the Pop Star of the next party. Now I can't take credit for this one, it was my husband's idea. Normally I get on him about his consumption of bacon and cheese, but this time he really popped this one out of the sky. I did tweak the spice part of it to make sure there is a POP every time you pop one of these bad boys into your mouth.

Jalapeno Pop Stars

1 package of center cut bacon
6 large jalapenos
1 brick of Cream Cheese
1 large bunch of chives minced
1 lemon
3 oz fresh lump crab meat
salt and pepper to taste

This really is a simple dish to make anyone rock the kitchen.
  • Take the cream cheese out and let it soften while you are preparing the jalapenos.
  • Slice peppers length ways in half and remove seeds and white membrane, then set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl add cream cheese, chives, crab meat, juice from one whole lemon and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • With a butter knife, fill the peppers till they are level with the cut side of the pepper with the stuffing.
  • Take the filled peppers and wrap with bacon. Start by folding one end over the top (where the stem was) of the pepper, overlapping a little bit. Then bring the bacon down and wrap around sideways. As though you are wrapping a blanket around a pig.
  • Place on a broil pan. Broil 20 to 30 minutes till bacon is nice a crispy all the way around. A trick to ensure even cooking, place poppers in the oven while it is cold and then start to broil them.
I am telling you this will make you a local Rock Star. There won't be a husband or child who won't be proud to say "My mom is a Rock Star in the kitchen!" Or make these for your next date night and you are sure to get things heated up.

ALEXIS NOTES: Some good changes that I have done in the past is use Neufchatel Cheese and Turkey Bacon is always a good sub. I know we're already eating something high in calories but why not cut out some :). Remember to buy your crab in the meat section so you can buy just the right amount and not have waste.
